MPM/CMK is now using Google Docs to distribute their monthly-ish newsletter. I just "found" the October release. It is in PDF format.

Here is the direct link.

I like the Skoda "Turtle".

The Taurus KEPD 350 might be useful too...

A Skoda Turtle would certainly make commuting a lot easier and more fun too!

Go ahead and cut me off, Mr BMW...just try it.

The Taurus  KEPD 350 would be interesting to hang from some of my aircraft.

Ditto on the driving to work option!
Is this one of those vehicles that could be driven just as well forwards as backwards?
It wouldn't take much to make this fit the MaK universe!

Those As.34 Kormorans look nice.

I wish the Saab B-5 was in 1/48…ah well, here is a kit review (in German) of the original release.

I agree, the 1/48 Komorans are especially attractive for use on a 1/48 Marinefleiger Buccaneer.

I have 1/48 Buc kits and there've been some gorgeous whif schemes Marineflieger posted here by PantherG for Buccaneers.  It's going to have the bulged weapons bay with fuel tank as well as the drop tanks and rocket boosters the SAAF used.

So the much-delayed F-86K is out - that should please the 1/48th fans: in a whiff world, you could export it to all sorts of places.

^ Got an Israeli F-86K planned (in 1/72, though). To be in natural metal.  Alongside some camouflaged radarless F-86 day-fighter/fighter-bomber.
Cheers,

The Quickboost 1/72 F-B/C/D/E early/J Phantom – Wing fold set looks good. Could save some space on the display shelf.

For the modellers who like to work in "aficionado scale", CMK offers the F-4K / FG.1 nose undercarriage leg in taxiing and take off position. So now any Phantom can now be flow off the smaller carriers.



Hannants has it on backorder.

Yes. Yes. Yes

How about a F-100 or a F-107 modified for USN carrier trials?

How about a F-100 or a F-107 modified for USN carrier trials?
Both are quite plausible and a navalized F-100 is close to one entry made in the competition that gave the USN the F8U while NAA-Columbus' FJ-5 proposal is a half-way step between a navalized F-100 and F-107, dorsal intake, but a plain pitot intake like the F-100 rather than a variable one and powered by a J79.
